A Truly "All-Stakeholder" Driven Process

Blog Post created by Kim Vincent-Layton on Aug 2, 2017

Humboldt State began migrating to Canvas in Fall 2016 and will be completely migrated at the start of Fall 2017.  While our Spring 2016 pilot Humboldt State may be the one institution that has piloted Canvas the longest (our first pilot was Spring 2015!). This is not a boast, just a simple fact. What was truly inspirational about the Spring/Summer 2016 pilot was that it was driven by a group of faculty (from all colleges), staff, students, and administrators. This process allowed us to bring in all stakeholder perspectives through a coordinated Learning Management System (LMS) Workin

g Group, survey and data support from our Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE), and campus focus groups and demonstrations, including a 'Canvas feature speed-dating' event for faculty.  Read more about our process on our Canvas Migration Website and in the attached Final Evaluation Report by the LMS Working Group.
